The most common cause of death in children aged 3 to 6 years old is drowning. Of these deaths…60% are children drowning in bodies of water NOT LOCATED ON THEIR OWN PARENTS PROPERTY. By installing a safety cover on your swimming pool and keeping it on the pool during the winter months you are essentially reducing the chances of this horrible event happening to your children or other children in the area by 50%. If you own a pool…you are responsible for keeping it safe AND you are liable if you don’t. Spend the extra money and have a safety cover installed on your pool! Quick note: A tarp style safety cover is actually more dangerous than no cover at all because when someone falls in the pool the tarp wraps around the person making it almost impossible to escape.
A pool with a swimming pool safety cover actually costs less to own over time as compared with an uncovered pool. If a pool is covered 6 months out of the year it will experience 50% less degradation over time from ultraviolet sunlight rays. A swimming pool safety cover is also effective in conserving over 90% of heat loss in a heated pool and can decrease the amount of time needed to heat a pool by 75%. For this reason, many pool owners cover their pools just before heating the pool. Heat conservation can save the pool owner thousands of dollars (literally) in heating costs over time.
Winterized swimming pools are ugly. Winterized swimming pools with tarp style covers are fugly. Winterized swimming pools with properly fitting and installed safety covers are pretty. Swimming pool safety covers come in four colors (Blue, Green, Tan, and Grey). Blue is the prettiest…grey is the ugliest.
